I’ve written about Little Manila, Little Thailand, Little Burma, Little India, Little Vietnam, Little China scattered throughout Singapore. Let’s flip things around and write about Little Singapore instead.
There are individual days in some major global cities when the Overseas Singaporean Unit brings the Singapore Day to town and Singaporeans from all over (sometimes a whole country/continent) congregate. But those are temporary events slated for a single day.
So what makes a Little Singapore? Like all Little (something) places, it’s an extension of the society from which these people have come from, where many people from that country are found. Perhaps one of the few Little Singapores is found around JB. Specifically City Square Mall in JB.
